There are definitely some benefits to living in a home half the size of the one we just sold. Just today, I cleaned my entire house! In one day! And I still had time to get my thumb x-rayed, and take a long walk with my hubby, and wash my car, and bring Amp to get a new desk.
I love that I can plug the vacuum in ONE plug and it’ll reach all the rooms! Before, I had to use three different plugs to get the entire house. And I love that I have one less bathroom, which means one less toilet and one less shower. Not to mention, the bathrooms are half the size. It’s heavenly, I’m telling you.
Except that the bathrooms are half the size. THAT is taking some gettin’ used to. Especially for poor Amp who now has to share a bathroom with a 16 year old girl and all her stuff. He gets one drawer. And he’s grateful.
We used to have a huge laundry room which doubled as a walk-in closet for the kids and a bathroom for the cat. Now, our washer and dryer are tucked in a closet with little room for anything else. And the cat has to traipse downstairs to do his thing. (Luckily he does.)
We wouldn’t change a thing though. Instead, we’re continuing to downsize and rid ourselves of the extras. It’s liberating in a sense. But boy do we have a long way to go.
Anybody need a box full of cake pans? A smoker? How about a 2 foot oriental doll in a glass case? Free shipping!
How about a pirate ship kite? A plastic tree? Anything?
Alright. Off to the church sale it goes. But let me know if you change your mind.
